Life Long Learning and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) are the processes by which professionals, such as nurses, develop and improve their practice.
There are many ways to address CPD: formally, through attending courses, study days and workshops; or informally, through private study and reflection. Reading articles in professional journals is a good way of keeping up-to-date with what is going on in the field of practice, but reflecting and identifying what you have learned is not always easy.
These questions are designed to help you to identify what you have learned from studying the article. They will also help you to clarify what you can apply to practice, what you did not understand and what you need to explore further.
